The Valiant Company
Support the creation of theatre plays in Šiauliai, Lithuania
The Valiant Company
Children and youth theatre studio ‘Kompanija Šauni’ (‘’The Valiant Company’’) of Šiauliai Student Non - Formal Education Centre was established 25 years ago by directors Dale Dargiene and Virginijus Dargis.
What do we do?
At the studio, children and teenagers take part in acting, dancing, singing and improvisation activities.
Young performers participate in the various city events, national and international festivals and projects. They have established good relationships with contemporaries not only from Lithuania but also from Latvia, Norway, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Sweden, Russia, UK, Italy, Slovenia and India.
The reason all these young people come to the studio is probably caused by a miracle - it takes only a couple years for them to become completely different. Getting more open minded and curious, helps to get the impetus for the future creations and even personal life.
The creative space, set up by energetic leaders, is filled with love which attracts even the graduated ones to come back/visit us and share and share and share… ‘Kompanija Šauni’ is not just an after school activity, it is a lifestyle.
Our festival "The White Crow"
The studio organizes the international theatre festival ‘’Baltoji Varnelė’’ (‘’The White Crow’’) every two years since 1996. This autumn will be the twelfth festival, which will feature groups from Denmark, Zambia, Britain, Latvia and Lithuania. Not only for our studio members ‘Kompanija Sauni’ is important but also for our city and the whole country. Our activities represent the youth of Lithuania in a positive way through art.
Allocation of funds
The studio received new premises for its activities, but we do not have the LIGHT and SOUND equipment needed for the theater. We desire to share our creative work with everyone but we need your help! After all we are all seeking for the light in our existence and it is our pursue (we actually need lights) :)
Sufficient lighting equipment for our studio would cost around 1500 euros.
And audio (speakers, etc.) - 500 euros.
If our goal is exceeded we will use the extra funds for floor coating which would cost about 500-1000 euros
The funds will go to "Kompanija Šauni" theatre studio founders.
